Local Councillor, Charlie O’Connor, has warmly welcomed progress towards the development of the proposed Tallaght Heritage Centre. The matter was the subject of a detailed presentation by Jason Frehill, Director of Economic, Enterprise and Tourism Development, at the May meeting of South Dublin County Council. It had previously been agreed by local Councillors that the Tallaght Heritage Centre would be located adjacent to the Civic Theatre at Council Headquarters.
Longtime campaigner for the Tallaght Heritage Centre, Charlie O’Connor told the Council meeting that it was an important and exciting development for the County Town and he congratulated the staff involved. He said that “it is important that we remember that Tallaght didn’t fall out of the sky 60 years ago and has a rich history and heritage which deserves to be preserved”
Charlie O’Connor asked for confirmation of the schedule now being followed and was told as follows: Part 8 Public Consultation in June/July, Part 8 September Council meeting, Detailed Design Q4 in 2023 & Tallaght Heritage Centre Construction Q1 in 2024. Finally, Councillor O’Connor called on the people of Tallaght to strongly support the project and to take a particular interest in the detail.
